Well, that depends on everyone's personal views on what constitutes "babies," which is definitely not a discussion we should be getting into here! I don't think that ever goes well... I have my views, others have theirs.

My thoughts were the same as Kali's, but yeah...didn't want to get into it!  We had this conversation already, I believe. 

 

I think, without debate, we generically can say- people who believe life begins the moment of conception probably would prefer not to have an IUD.

This is why I stillheart.gif you, Ash. I can totally agree with this statement. Therefore, my IUD advice/experience is intended for the other crew!

Yay! I'm actually on my laptop at home! I can post! (Don't get too excited.)

 

Sara, how is the roof? Raccoons? Other Sara?

 

Joanie, how was the concert?? I used to love 311 in high school. Not so into them anymore, but I remember seeing them in like 96/97. Also, I still like the song "Amber." 

 

Speaking of cabins, when is our DDC meet-up? biggrinbounce.gif

Just lettin' y'all know that we're headed on an overnight trip to Raging Rivers water park.  I don't think I'll be getting on to post until Wednesday probably.  Didn't want anyone thinking I had spontaneously combusted or anything!

I don't think we know what to do without you Jaimee! Ha!

DDC meet up needs to happen like... Yesterday.

I'm doing a 5 year something after Layla while DH comes to terms with a V and being done having kids, LOL. I haven't decided what though. All I know is no BC at all while BFing this time. Stupid supply issues.

I'm peeling from the amusement park on Monday. As if being 31 weeks pregnant isn't fun enough, add uncontrollable itching to it. Yay!

I need to get on here on a computer so I can update my pregnancy ticker, haha.

I'm late to the conversation, but I love my Mirena! I had it inserted at my post partum check up after Greta, so the insertion didn't hurt at all for me. I have heard it's a little painful otherwise. I think they try to do it either just before or just after your period so your cervix is a little softer. I occasionally have some mild cramping with maybe a day of light bleeding/spotting. That's not even every month, so mostly I don't have periods anymore. Nicole, the Mirena was a compromise for DH and I too. He was ready for a vas after Greta was born. I'm not ready to do anything permanent, so that's our compromise. The deal is, if we make it the whole five years and we still don't want anymore kids then he is scheduling his vas. I tell him all the time, the day he schedules he vas I am scheduling my boob job. These babies need to be listen back up to where they belong and they need to be about 2 cup sizes smaller!

Oh and the 4th... We made it to a fireworks show!! The girls didn't love it so I'm not sure it was worth it, but we can say we made it! Otherwise, it was a pretty good day. We went to a block party. Good food, swimming, and fireworks. DH and I left for our float trip the next morning. That was lots of fun. Exhausting and way more alcohol consumption than I am used to. I paid for that all day yesterday on the drive home across the state. But still lots of fun!

Amanda, we didn't end up going to the concert because I was in a realllly bad mood on Saturday. DH was really disappointed. It is what it is. Can't take it back now.

Conner started telling me he loves me before I leave. smile.gif I'm pretty sure it's one of those things that only a parent understands, but it's totally there.



Hi, Layla. 30w6d.

Wow Nicole, there's a baby in there!

Some of you have experience with antidepressants while nursing, right? Any favorites?
post #94 of 444
Aww yay, look at that baby! :) Too cool, Nicole. Yes, Sara, I started on Zoloft about 6 months into nursing. I liked it a lot. It's supposed to be one of the best (or THE best?) as far as undetectability in breastmilk goes.

Already on the top dose of that. I'm looking for a new doc here, too.

Oh okay. Sorry, I'm no help then. That's the only one I've had experience with. I believe Amanda was on a different antidepressant than me while nursing. Maybe she can offer a suggestion?
post #97 of 444

I take Lexapro. I've tried Prozac and Celexa as well. I like Lexapro the best. It is great for anxiety and has more of a calming effect. Some of the drugs have more of an "up" type effect. Prozac and Zoloft are in that class, I believe. I tend towards hyper and anxious, so the Lexapro calms me down. IME, it takes a week or two to get used to it; I felt a bit dopey and dizzy at first. I have two friends who also felt Lexapro worked the best. One stopped taking it because of sex drive issues. If the depression is bad, I don't know that sex drive is the number one issue! I haven't had any issues with it either way. 

 

I take 10 mg, which is the lowest dose I believe.

LOL. Depression ain't sexy. I've heard a lot of good about Lexapro, thanks for chiming in. 

 

Thanks Joanie, also. 

 

Speaking of sex drive, did I tell y'all some guy knocked on my door a couple of weeks ago looking for Sara. He was someone she and O play cards with. I said, "I'm Sara" and he looked me up and down and said, "Not the right Sara. You her sister or something?" LOL. Someone had two girls and decided to name them both Sara.  Then they grew up to live together. He had come to ask her out. It was a pretty awesomely hilarious event.

Wait, he plays cards with Sara and O
but didn't know she was in a relationship with kids?? How did that happen?!? "Who's the kid?" "Oh, that's just my sister, Sara's, son."

True story: dh's dad had a son from a previous relationship before he had dh. He gave son 1 the same first name as dh's middle name. Both go by that name. Does that make sense??? Meaning, he has two sons named Michael lastname. Weird.
